What Happens When You Have Older Kids On Christmas



When your kids are older, I find Christmas isn't as chaotic. Christmas can be a little different.


Let me explain the ways.





1. You have to wake them up. It was about 830 and both kids were still passed out.





2. They'll mostly get things like video games. This is a plus because you don't have to put toys together! Or take them out of their packages.






3. And tons of food. My son eats all the time, so he got a bunch of chocolate and snacks. They'll be gone in like 3 days.





4. But if you have a girl, it might be makeup. I don't understand makeup, so I have her show me what she likes before Christmas so I know. 





5. Oh, they'll also have to post photos of their gifts on social media BEFORE they open them. Yup. Gotta get those new shoes on Snapchat! 





6. Batteries will still be forgotten. I have tons of AA ones, but naturally this requires Ds. Naturally.





Things are certainly different when kids are older. But personally, I prefer it. Still messy. But not so intense.

  1. I think whatever age your kids are, they still love the holidays because they are cozy. I remember being a rebellious kid, but the holidays always made me so very happy!

  2. I have older kids too now and they do not ask for a lot but the gifts are more expensive. I am not waiting for the car request which will be coming soon.

  4. Everything is so different when you have older kids. Sleeping in is always a bonus. My kids are college age now and I have lots of fun with them

  7. I agree, it’s not so intense when they’re older. I actually prefer this age group as well.

  12. No matter what age, I loved unpacking gifts under the Christmas tree. In my country, Santa comes on the 24th in the evening. Usually children go out caroling and when they return, Santa has already visited their house, so the evening is all about opening presents.

  16. It's interesting how tastes change over the years. Yes, less intense but still as eventful. What's important are the shared moments together. Cheers.

  17. Seriously. Our oldest is focused on getting video games all the time. It's his life.

  18. This is the first year my kids didn't really want toys for Christmas. They sure are growing up and I was a bit sad, but glad at the same time. I do find it harder to find gifts when they're older though. Luckily they gave me a list this year so it was a bit easier.

  19. I love Christmas at any age. But maybe we enjoy Christmas more when our kids are older?!

  20. As an older person who still gets presents from my parents and parents in law, I can concur that video games/clothes/pants etc are all excellent and well accepted presents :)

  21. Yes my kids love to get presents from santa. They wakeup early in that morning. Looks like your kids got the presents what they want from Santa.

  22. Every Christmas is different especially when you have growing kids. The likes varies and changes as soon as they grow. Yeah, social media has a big impact to them too.

  23. I can totally relate to this. My kids slept til 9:30 this year and then wandered downstairs very slowly. It was much more low key. And they too ate like 10 lbs of candy in like 3 days lol!
